The story centers on a cynical Irish comic who falls for a New York City woman while on a comedy tour. Lee Cleary will direct from a screenplay by Jeff Murphy. Production will take place in Northern Ireland and New York City, although it isn't clear when shooting will begin.
Lisa Katselas and Dan Reardon are on board as producers. Here's what Lisa Katselas had to say about this project.
"Fairytale of New York lets us observe what most of us hope for in a relationship and then takes us further. To achieve this, we needed to find actors with a magical connection -- and we have in Kiefer and Kate."
